Manas KatyalNo. You must! Manas Katyal ? One of the finalists of Rakhi Ka Sawayvar on NDTV Imgaine. The show that will baffle many generations of sociologists for sure. And Rakhi Sawant surely deserves the Lifetime Achievement Acting Award for this show. Because nobody can fake it better than her. And she also can’t do better than this. You have to watch the videos. With background music from bollwood. It doesn’t get funnier than this. Swayamvar moves to Delhi now. We are hooked and how!

And don’t miss the quote of the year – Item girl bahu hai, bahu item girl nahi hai!

Jab We MetThe season of the sequels is back, with a good news and a bad one.Singh is King

Imtiaz Ali is planning a sequel to Jab We Met. What will happen to Geet and Aditya post-marriage ? Nothing is confirmed yet. Its just an idea. Or may be its a PR-driven feature to have some more buzz for Love Aaj Kal. For the full report, click here.

And the bad news. Remember Shit is King. Producer Vipul Shah is planning to make a sequel and plans to direct it himself. The first one was directed by Anees Bazmee. Happy Singh with Nappy Singh jokes will be back, in a different setting.

Pakhi & Abbas TyrewalaHis debut feature Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na went on to become big hit. We thought it was strictly ok, serving the bollywood’s oldest  cliche ek ladka aur ladki dost nahi ho sakte hai kya! But then, when you cater to U-25 with popcorn and cola flick, High School Whimsical is also superhit.

Abbas Tyrewala was well known writer before he turned to direction. Ashoka (D), Maqbool, Chupke Se, Munnabhai MBBS (D), Main Hoon Na (S&D), Salaam Namaste (D), Shikhar and De Taali. And now he is busy directing 1-800-Love, written by his wife Pakhi who also stars in it, opposite John Abraham. If the gossipmongers at Producer Madhu Mantena’s office are to believed, Tyrewala has been paid Rs 5 crore as direction fees for the film! woohoo!

Post JTYJN, Tyrewala is flying quite high. If you thought Farah and her brother Sajid Khan are loudmouths, you need to attend a session of Tyrewala Talks! Gyaan-guru, who has solutions for everything. And now to help Tyrewala, Pakhi’s full family is involved in the making of the film. Her mother, who is a drama teacher, is coaching John Abraham for getting the dialogues right. Knowing Abraham’s acting talent, we surely reccomend few more teachers. Also, Pakhi’s brother has come onboard. Not sure, in which capacity.

Producer Mantena ia making sure that every demand of the director, his dear biwi and his biwi‘s family is met!

PS – We are yet to confirm this. Have heard that 1-800-Love is not Pakhi’s big screen debut. She was in Hansal Mehta’s film Yeh Kya Ho Raha Hai. If anyone can confirm it, as we haven’t seen the film.
